The Powerball Jackpot has hit a record high of $900 million. Of course that has everyone wondering: What would I spend all that money on? 

Well, if you're a Tulsa lover you could buy some pretty cool things!


5. ORU Prayer Towers

and not just one! You could build 108 Prayer Tower with your winnings.

(and yes we are good journalists and made sure to calculate for inflation, as the Tower was built in the '60s.)

4. Downtown Tulsa Library

You could renovate the downtown Tulsa library at least 17 times with that $800 million. Just be sure to keep enough extra to fill them with books!

3. South Tulsa Mansion

Did you know that sucker is worth just under $3 million? Well that means you could purchase at least 250 of these mansions. 


2. The Gathering Place

You could fill Tulsa with places to gather, specifically, 2 and a half more outside of the one they are currently building along Riverside.

1. BOK Center

This one is probably the coolest potential buy! You could buy yourself four BOK centers with the jackpot. 

Keep in mind you could also donate a portion of your winnings to your favorite Tulsa news station. *wink wink* 

While it is fun to imagine what you'd buy with all that money, remember: there's only a one in 292 million chance that you'd actually win. That means that you're more likely to become president than win $800 million.
